Over the last 15 years, Russia’s legal system has undergone a fundamental restructuring, a process which is continuing. Currently, the legal framework for the operation of courts is mainly comprised of the Constitution of the Russian Federation (RF) of 1993, the Federal Constitutional Law on the Justice System (1996), procedural codes regarding civil (2003), criminal (2001), and arbitrazh (2002) matters and the federal law on the Justices of the Peace (1998).
